Even when they're not in uniform, cops are everywhere in our media: music, film, TV, TikTok,  journalism, and more. pop justice is Scalawag's bi-weekly newsletter that sits right at the intersection of popular culture and justice—namely through abolition.

pop justice isn't about policing the media you consume (even you, true-crime bingers). Instead, we see pop culture as a relatable and—even enjoyable—entry point to tough and necessary conversations about abolishing the police state.
